The Slaughter at Haranush
No one survived. Not one. It was the bloodiest scene I have ever encountered. Only the most evil and despicable would murder innocents.
The Northern Chadi caravan had left the Muioqa Desert Muioqa Desert headed back to the Chadi homeland. They returning from a successful trip to the region of Mount Niaholm to obtain supplies from the Niaholm Fungus Mine. Their goal was to make their way to Pekubogo Monin, at the border of the Kingdom of Orsholon - Region and , where they would sell their fungi to the merchants for use in various potions and tinctures including the highly sought after Sani Rakia Ike (Amando Fazio is a great proponent of this compound). The fungi were a great source of income for the traders, and after trading in Pekubogo Monin, they would head to the Lawcrane Royal Infirmary in Lawcrane. There, they had constructed a deal to obtain the fungus used for Aca Fungal Steam Purple Haize treatments in exchange for a new possible treatment for the Pewamro's terribly debilitating mutations. There was also rumor that a new recipe for Dwarven Bacon was available, and that it approximated the legendary food. Moving east, they would need to go through the Haranush Pass, near the village of Haranush. The pass was the easiest and quickest way to the coastline from Mt. Niaholm. Given the terrain, the narrow pass was nearly straight through the hills east of Haranush. The tall rock walls had been cut sometime before The Cataclysm and were an important route through the region. At the same time, Vaergahl The Bearded, a vile, vicious Red Dragon, had been planning an attack on traders that his minions had told him were carrying carts full of gems and gold, as well as dragonstones. He had also been told that the caravan would be hiding documents that would tell the location on the highly sought after Mehnfrehm. These traders were believed to be heading east to the Chadigartu capitol. Vaergahl planned to make a swift attack, diving in from above while his minions closed off both ends of the pass. He sent them ahead to make camp and prepare.
